Course content

This programme is built on the professional and academic expertise in urban design within the Lincoln School of Architecture. It is focused on improving urban design skills within the planning profession.

Whereas architects typically deal with the design of buildings in cities, urban design focuses on designing at a larger scale, involving public and private spaces, which are recognised as the framework of societies and expressions of their cultures. The focus of this programme is the improvement of the quality of towns and countryside.

MA Planning and Urban Design draws upon local, national and international ways of thinking and designing. You will engage in work that results in detailed and comprehensive development briefs and master plans as well as more detailed proposals for specific interventions.
